More than half of U.S. homes don’t have or use a landline
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Over half of Americans don’t use or even have a land line telephone, according to USA TODAY.
A study released by the Centers for Disease Control, tracked the demographic of land line telephone use and was designed to help the CDC reorganize its collection program—which usually relied on calling land lines.
The survey found that more than one-third of homes had only wireless telephones during the first half of 2012.
15.9% of households had both a land line and wireless telephone, but recieved almost all calls on the wireless phone.
